Acer GD235HZ

 

We can count on one hand the number of people we know who have bought into Nvidia's 3D Vision gaming system—those shutter goggles haven't exactly been selling like hotcakes.

1920x1080 resolution; fast response time; good contrast in both lights and darks

Limited display inputs; no USB ports; some ghosting in 3D; restrictive stand

As it stands, the GD235HZ is the best monitor you can find for desktop 3D gaming or stereo 3D photographers. But it’s still considerably more expensive than a 60Hz monitor of a comparable size, and it isn’t even the best TN panel we’ve reviewed. We...

Acer GD235HZ review: Acer GD235HZ

 

3D is still touted as the missing ingredient that will enhance our entertainment experiences, be it in movies or games. I've yet to be persuaded of this, but it doesn't stop many companies from dipping their toes into the 3D waters. On the PC gaming...

The Acer GD235HZ has great gaming performance, good movie playback, and includes the connection option trifecta of DVI, VGA, and HDMI.

At default settings, the monitor pushes too much green. Also, it lacks ergonomic options and its price is a bit too high if not planning to view any 3D content.

The Acer GD235HZ is a high-performing 3D monitor that's great for gamers looking for a low-price 3D-capable offering.

Worst 120Hz Monitor

 

I bought this monitor for 120hz gaming in January 2013. I got it up and running properly in 120hz but soon noticed everything in motion on the screen was outlined in green, then purple, then red, then blue and progressively got worse. I RMA'd it back...

Good Color

Screen went half black

 

I bought this because it was 120Hz monitor and it was cheap mainly to be better at BF3. I will not pay this amount of money for a monitor that has some issues. I am RMAing this for a BenQ XL2420. The Asus 144 Hz was an option as well but I want quality...

120 Hz and price

Colors are washed out. Some backlight bleeding. Why on earth does the screen go literally half black on the left side ; After googling it looks as if others have the same prob. This is easily fixed by turing off the monitor and back on after a few minutes

Good value 120hz

 

Doesn't come with the hardware needed for nVIDIA's 3D. You'll need to buy that separately if you want to use 3D. The orange parts on the stand could clash with some people's setups but causes no problems with mine.

120hz. I never thought I'd really notice that much of a difference between 60 and 120, until I had this hooked up side by side with my old monitors. Even dragging a windows explorer window around the screen is smoother

Overdrive can cause some ghosting in games so I have it turned off. HDMI is strictly for PC, had it hooked up to a cable box and if you run 720i or 1080i it turns purple. Also has an annoying habit of prioritizing the HDMI input over the DVI input. If...

Nice monitor

 

The backlight issue is only noticeable on darker colors, but it really breaks the atmosphere of games like Metro: Last Light. Overall I've been pretty happy with this monitor.

Very responsive - no input lag. Works nicely with Nvidia 3D vision), and I love the 120Hz refresh rate when I'm not using 3D

Slow to power up. Backlight is not ideal for gaming immersion; the screen never really goes dark, there's always a bleed from the light coming through

3D Works Well !

 

Remember to view 3D content you will need to buy a universal or NVidia Stereoscopic 3D kit that comes with the glasses and transmitter.

3D Across 2-3 of these monitors works well and is easy to set up with Nvidia Control Panel

To Use this monitor in 3D it requires you use a DVI connection and does not support 3D via HDMI; however, the specs say you can use a display port to DVI adapter if you can find the right kind. I however, was not able to find the right adapter type,...

Disappointing

 

You can probably find a monitor with a better picture for less money. However, since I didn't test the 3D features, this might still be the best cheap 3D montior, especially with the 120Hz refresh (if your system is powerful enough for that to matter).

I didn't test the 3D features and cannot comment on them ; System apparently not powerful enough to take advantage of the 120Hz refresh rate, so I can't comment on that either

Very wobbly base, wobbles all over when I type or bump the table unless supported by heavy objects ; After using multiple calibration resources, the contrast - especially between black and near-black - is unacceptably poor. Black is not true black,...
